aMAZEd in SPACE was written for Bally BASIC. This program was loaded from the 300-baud version of the game that was archived from tape and is available on BallyAlley.com. This game runs on the Bally Arcade/Astrocade, a game console/computer released in January 1978. This program was originally published in Arcadian 1, no. 8 (July 20, 1979).
Description from Arcadian:
aMAZEd in SPACE game included in this issue is a rocketship-thru-the-maze challenge with a number of levels of difficulty. One problem is that I've lost the name of the originator. I sent the material to Dick Houser who made a few modifications and prepared the descriptive material. Note how he has separated the listing into blocks that correspond with the flow chart. The program lines marked C are just for information and do not go into the machine.
From Richard Houser's hand-written program instructions:
Maneuver spaceship thru maze without crashing into walls. Direction is controlled by joystick 1. Path size, maze height, maze width and degree of difficulty, are selected by keyboard input. Score is based on these inputs and time taken to complete maze. It takes quite awhile to complete maze interior, so start small.
Select Hand-Written Comments from Aquila's January 1, 1979 Letter:
This was my first try at writing a program on ANY computer, so if you see things to improve, PLEASE improve it for whatever reason. You could get rid of plenty PRINT stuff and also the changing star pattern at the end. I just put those in for effect?
